Camping season is upon us! And with it brings the many adventures you and your family will have. If you have never camped with your new RV before, we have some camping tips that will help you get ready for the season.
1. Take your time.
When you’re RVing, remember that you’re adventuring. It’s not every day that you get to explore, so take the scenic route or find that little dip by the water where you can park your trailer and have breakfast or lunch. I have been on trips where we slowed down, took our time, and enjoyed the adventures, and those are the times that I remember most.
While at your site, sit back and relax! After you set up and make sure that all of your RV is hooked up, enjoy the time you have with your family. Have a bonfire, cook some marshmallows, and make sure to breathe in the fresh air!
Make sure that you have plenty of time to set up in the day time. Setting up in the dark is a horrible way to start your vacation! It can become frustrating to have to back up into a camp site or if you have to fumble around with cords.
2. The GPS may tell you 3 hours, but plan on 4 and half.
This is a commonplace expectation for RVers. Because either hauling or driving such a large vehicle, you will have to make sure that you schedule the right amount of time for traveling. Having an RV means you drive more carefully and your vehicle tends to to drive a bit slower as well. You won’t be able to zoom in and out of the passing lane every few minutes.
So make sure that you give yourself that extra time to get where you are going!
3. RV People Make Great Friends!
If you don’t know what to do about something in the campground or about your RV, it never hurts to ask the other RVers around you. RVers are the most helpful people when it comes to RVing. Chances are, the people around you have been RVing for years, so never be afraid to ask questions. The camp host also normally has excellent advice to give, as well. There is certainly a learning curve with RVing, and anyone who has done it knows it can be a shaky beginning, so there is no shame in asking those who have gone before you.
Rvers are some of the friendliest people and love helping others when they’re in need!
The fact of the matter is, you should relax and enjoy the adventure! RVing can sometimes be stressful, but if you take the right precautions and follow these three steps, you’re on your way to a better vacation.
